Oh! We Were Wrong.

Hi! We Started w/:

Made  a Mistake!

In your head out loud under you breath–throughout your day–shadowing

We Continue w/: Oh! We were wrong.

What some people in history might have said!

solarsystem_zps7f3a25d8

Oh! We were wrong. The sun, not the earth, is the center of the universe.

Oh! We were wrong. It is the heart, not the liver, that circulates blood.

Oh! We were wrong. Doctors do have to wash their hands. 

 

Have a good one!

A++ Saturday!!!

Hi! Welcome to A++ Saturday!

 

A++ is giving the basic information and

adding detail.

 

A++ is giving extra information in your responses to questions or comments. Here are three examples:

 

Question/Comment

Answer

+

+

1) How are you?

Fine!

I went for a walk this morning.

I saw so many beautiful flowers!

2) That looks delicious.

It is!

I got it at the bakery near the station.

It was my first time to go to that bakery.

3) Can you play tennis?

No. I don’t really like sports.

I like reading!

 

 

 

Here are some ideas for how

to think A++ for one of this week’s

sentences.

 

One example from this week is:

I’m bushed.

28

Notice all of the (+), (+)!!!

 

A) I’m bushed. (+)I just spent two

hours in the garden. (+) I must say it

looks great.

 

B) Next time call me. (+) I’ll come and help.

(+) don’t have a garden.

 

A) That’s a great idea. (+) It’s kind of

early. (+) Is that OK?

 

B) (+) Absolutley! (+) Besides, it’s good for

me! (+) I’m in an office all day usually.

 

B) That’s true. (+) And, working with plants 

is really healing. (+) I love the birds, too.

 

A) I like your garden. (+) You keep it

natural and chemical free. (+) That’s nice.

 

B) Thank you. (+) I may be a little too

natural for some. (+) I don’t care if insects

are in my garden!!!!

 

Sometimes people plant flowers that

naturally attract bugs—and then these

people kill the bugs: salt on slugs;

poisonous sprays—respect life–and find

out about plants and flowers that don’t

attract the insects you want to keep

out!!!

 

Have a good one!

 

 

Sincerely,

Katie
